Grand Theft Auto: New Order follows the story of Morgan "Wilson" Williams and his quest for revenge against the GHS. The game has over 50 missions within its 5 chapters.
New Order starts on January first 2015, when Morgan meets up with his friends on the streets of Liberty City: James Anderson, Scott Thompson, Michael Jones and Jack Adams. Out of nowhere, two bikers come around the corner, shoot Jack and drive off. This sets the beginning to chapter one, where Morgan and his group take down Golden Horde of Scandinavia. After destroying the GHS in Liberty City, the group decides to go afther the groups leader, Jack Ladrick, who lives in Los Santos. James decides to stay in Liberty City and the rest of the group flies to Los Santos.
The group realise that the GHS is too big for them alone to take it down. They come across Ted, a powerfull member of The Lost. They quickly team up and destroy the GHS in Los Santos, but they realise the leader of GHS, Jack Ladrick, has been murdered. They decide to go after the new leader of the GHS, Gary Jones, who had fled to Finland on his own plane.
The group lands in Rovaniemi and hear that the GHS is at war with Finland. They team up and wage war against the GHS. They soon find out that James had became a member of the GHS. They track down James in order to kill him, but Morgan realises that James is still a good guy and spares his live. Finlands military wants James dead, and they flee the country with a boat, only to find out that they landed back in Finland.
After chasing down James for two years, Morgan and Scott finally catch him in 2015. James informs them that he is no longer part of GHS and that Gary has bombed EU central bank, and that a war has been declared. Morgan after realising that James is not a bad guy, took James back to his group. The group takes down many GHS members in the war. By 2018, the war was ended and the group couldn't fight the war anymore, not without the help of EU or the USA. They quickly decide to spy and get more information about GHS.
GHS got a new leader, John Simmons. The group goes after the new leader, who is now living in Los Santos. Lucky for them, James, as a former member of GHS, knows where he might be hiding. The group goes after John, but they didn't find him. Instead they were ambushed by John and the group fleed the scene. Morgan was all alone after he got separated from the group. Morgan finds Scott but James is still missing. A year later, in 2019, they found James, he had been taken as a hostage by the GHS. John promised that he would give them James back, but he wanted a million dollars. It took the group over five months to collect all the money by robbery and theft. But eventually, in 2020, they were giving out the money to John. But an unknown person shot John in the middle of the trade and the GHS blamed the group for it. They fleed off, but this time, together. After they escaped, Scott was shot and for his final wish, he wanted Morgan and James to keep going, and that he would hold them off. This was effective but Scott died. Morgan and James found out that the man who killed John was Hank. The group took everything they had and started following him. Morgan and James catched Hanks Gang Burrito and started ramming him of the road. Hank lost control and the car flew of the road. Hank was still alive so Morgan set the car on fire. It eventually exploded, leaving behind only the dust of what was once a powerfull gang. Morgan and James continued their criminal life in Los Santos until 2030, when they both retired in Blaine County,
